Does 100 cc qualify as a thumper?

I'd rather call it a "tapper" LOL

For me a thumper has to be at least 250cc.

First bike Honda Goldwing 1500
Next bike BMW 1150 GS Adventure
Next bike Ktm 950 Adventure
Next bike Honda 750 Africa Twin
Next bike a Chinese Qing Qi 200 CC bike
Next bike a 1983 MTX 200 motorcross bike
And now, a collector 1983 Honda XL 100S, the great grandfather
of all you guys riding bad ass Honda off road bikes...
There definitely seems to be a downward movement in CC size....

Bike is now in Oregon, has been sitting for many years. Total
milage on it ? 1600. So a few cosmetic issues, but inside it is a
brand new bike. So will finish a construction project here, and head
down the pacific coast highway to Los Angeles. At it's top speed,
a blinding 35 mph. Should get a few comments in the rest stops along
the way from the sport bike guys...
